The United Nations’ high commissioner for human rights publicly condemned a virulently anti-Semitic booklet being distributed by an Arab group at a U.N.-backed conference on racism in South Africa. Mary Robinson called the Cairo-based Arab Lawyers Union booklet “racist” and said she would not allow “this fractiousness to torpedo the conference.” The booklet contains anti-Semitic cartoons with Nazi swastikas and pictures of Jews with hooked noses and fangs dripping blood.
